TMD 2018 WORKSHOP, DESIGN WEEK 2018,21-22 APRIL, MILANO

The Japanese finishes are distinguished worldwide for the virtuosity of the artisans who ennoble the poor material, the digged earth, realizing polished and marbled surfaces.The poor materials of the mixtures start from mineral elements (clayey lands and river sands), from vegetable elements (straw and paper fibers) and mineral additives (lime), vegetables and marine (starch, methyl cellulose, algae …) and in some cases also from pigments (oxides or ashes).Each of the layers of the Japanese finishing stratigraphy gives back such precious textures as to be often left exposed, as in the case of Otsu Haitsuchi, Kiri Kaeshi, Nami Otsu, Nori Tsuchi, Hai Naka Tsuchi, although they are born as background for the shiny surfaces of the Otsu Hikitsuchi. The glossy and compact finishes, in Japanese Migaki, are native to the town of Otsu, in the Prefecture of Shiga and can be made waterproof with the addition of lime.The craft tradition, codified in detail for the realization of the dough and its implementation, lives and is transmitted with the work and research of the Sakan and the schools of artisans, where ancient knowledge mixes and give life to experiments for the contemporary, always with a meticulous and not casual approach.
